Testimonials

Over the past few weeks, children from our Yr 6 classes have been thoroughly engaged in the Capoeira lessons. They have motivated and challenged the children, as they have learnt a variety of new moves. They have also had the opportunity to play instruments that would be used and have gained new vocabulary. Also, they have learnt to count in Portuguese and were able to take part in singing. The warm up was especially great and really challenged them. Thank you so much for these sessions

Jessica (Year 6 Teacher), Knutsford Primary Academy

''The workshops encouraged meaningful interaction and gave opportunities to learn about different countries and communities. Working across a cluster of schools can be very complex but Workshops for Schools simplified the process and ensured our children and staff had an amazing experience.''
